Discover the Karibu Mystery Trip...
Let us tell you about our founding story, the reason why Karibu was born.
We became friends at university in Wales, where we bonded over a love of travel and adventure. When it was time to go our separate ways and live in different parts of the world, we needed a fun way to get together and so we didn’t lose touch with each other. That’s where the idea for our mystery trip came from.
The idea is simple: one person organises an epic trip to a mystery location and everyone else just turns up at the airport with only the items they can carry. The feeling you get when you go on a mystery trip is similar to what a kid would feel like when opening their birthday presents - first there’s the anticipation, then the excitement that comes as every detail of the trip is unveiled throughout a weekend.
From cycling around Copenhagen to navigating the chaotic bazaars of Istanbul, our mystery trips have led us to have many incredible experiences around the world. With every trip, the bar gets raised higher and our activities get more adventurous. Most recently, we watched the Red Bull Air race in Porto. Next, who knows. All we can say is that this is just the beginning.
Only packing what we can carry is a tough ask. The mystery trips are a mixture action and adventure, but also sophistication. You really need to be prepared for any occasion - but mostly adventure ready! As any great adventurer knows, you need to travel light and can’t afford to waste space with unnecessary extra items. There can be no compromise when it comes to performance, but when the time is right you also need to look the part. Our ethos is why compromise. You need items which are perfect for any occasion.
Our craving for travel is only rivalled by our passion for beautifully made watches. It wasn’t long before we realised that we were all leaving our favourite watches at home - for fear that they weren’t up to the challenge. It was then we decided to create the ultimate travel watch, and the idea for Karibu was born. We wanted a watch that was consistent with our ethos. A watch that could withstand any conditions.
In a dimly lit cabin in Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (google it. It's real! We promise) we stayed up late into the night, bouncing ideas from wall to wall. We wanted to build a watch to take us around the world on our wildest adventures yet. To stand clear above the rest, we wanted Karibu to be the watch you could wear from day to night, from mountain summit to exclusive soiree. Karibu is a watch that will take us further than we’ve ever been before, it’s a watch that is superhero by day, gentleman by night - no compromise.
We now want to share this with you. Every adventurer needs a watch to match their every ambition.
You’re now equipped with a Karibu, where will your mystery trip take you?
